Anyone racing the Rolex in St Thomas or BVI Spring Regatta

Wondering if any other members would be racing in the International Rolex Regatta on St Thomas, USVI this weekend or in the BVI (Nanny Cay, Tortola) Spring Regatta the following weekend. If so what boat are you on?

Mr Z. The Rolex is this weekend. First race is tomorrow at 9:55 AM local time. There will be racing on Saturday and Sunday as well. Sunday night at the St Thomas Yacht Club awards ceremony I will be there to watch my skipper not get a new Rolex. Rolex website is here Official Rolex Regatta Notice of Race

BVI events begin March 31 but the "real" racing begins April 4-6. Website is here BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival 2008

Are you going to Tortola next week?

Jody can you fake the bruises and sore muscles too? I assume that no matter where you are you will be able to recreate the lack of sleep and morning hangover. Every few seconds bounce around and throw salt water on your face until your sunglasses are glazed over. You'll think you are here.

FarCry - No, I still need to slave here in Europe. I will be going for 2 weeks in mid to late April (there will be some pictures, as the same 2 ladies from the last trip are going to accompany me again!).

Z good to know. At least now if I see you boat rocking while at anchor I won't immediatly assume you are alone Or with a cute goat you caught on Jost. Or are you getting the 2 for 1 discount now that Spitzer is out of business?



Carnival is here at the end of April and we usually escape to our boat and over to the BVI, maybe we'll cross paths/anchorages then.

Speaking of those loud goats up in the hills over Great Harbour on JVD... I think that a scope would be overkill, but one would need a suppressor.

Just like old Stevie Ray stated succinctly "When the boat is a rockin', don't bother knockin'"
